y= 2x +1/x+1
everytime i get to the end of the problem i get stuck...can some please show the steps i dont know where i am messing up at
From the headline I assume that you want to solve for x.
1. Multiply both sides of the equation by x to get rid of the denominator:
xy = 2x² + 1 + x ==> 2x² + x - xy + 1 = 0 ==> 2x² + (1-y)x +1 = 0
2. This is a quadratic equation in x which you can solve by the formula:
x = -(1-y)/(4) ± √((1-y)² - 8)/16)
